Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the most successful and talented soccer players of his generation. The 38-year-old player is also known for his high self-esteem, and he makes the world aware of it. When he was only 18 years old, he refused a trial on Arsenal because, according to him, he "doesn't do auditions."
Ibrahimovic also criticized Pep Guardiola, Barcelona's coach, because he thought he felt underestimated on the team. " You bought a Ferrari, but you drive it like a Fiat", he told Guardiola.
The LA Galaxy forward has a net worth estimated at $190 million. Curious to see how he spends his fortune? Keep scrolling.
10 Porsche Spyder
In 2014, Zlatan Ibrahimovic bought a Porsche Spyder, which costs $861 thousand. The player was first seen driving the car in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Porsche Spyder is the replacement for the Carrera GT and has impressive features. The mechanics are very similar to a race car, and it is probably something Ibrahimovic loves about it. Yet, this is not his only luxury car. The player also has a Ferrari Enzo, an Audi S8, Masarati Gran Tourismo and Lamborghini Gallardo.
"It's not like I go polish them every day," Zlatan said. "I never clean my car. I have it for six years. I like to drive them. I'm not there to make it beautiful."
9 Private Jet
Soccer players are famous for investing part of their fortune on private jets. Neymar, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ibrahimovic are some players who can afford this luxury.
Ibrahimovic chose a Cessna Citation Longitude that costs nearly $26 million. The plane has 12 leather seats and can reach up to 881 km per hour. It is ideal for a long flight and also has a fuel efficiency system. The tank is enough to make 3,500 nautical miles.
When a journalist asked if he bought a Ferrari, he said "Absolutely not. I have ordered a plane. It is much faster."
8 Rolex Daytona
Ibrahimovic doesn't like cheap things. Although he doesn't have a particular passion for watches, he chose a Rolex Daytona for the LA Galaxy conference. The model costs $12.400.
"For some people, it's important," he said during an interview. "For me, I have a different story. I had a lot of watches, important watches, before they robbed my house. We went on vacation and my wife said, 'Bring some watches. You're going to need them for the vacation.'"
He left the watches at home and there was a robbery. "They cleaned everything," he said. "That was a message from God. I should have nothing like those watches."
After buying an expensive car collection and a private jet, most people would believe they had everything. However, Ibrahimovic is not like most people. He also bought a yacht that costs nearly $9 million. Last year, he shared an image of it on his social media with the caption "almost there" when he was waiting for it.
The luxurious Riva 100 Corsaro has a club, dining area, and a cocktail bar. It has enough space to invite his teammates to celebrate their victories. He is not the only celebrity who has a yacht. Elton John, Beyonce, and Neymar can also enjoy the sunny days on their private boats.
6 Renting A House In England
When Ibrahimovic signed with Manchester United, he decided to rent a luxurious home in the country. The player had to pay nearly $38 thousand every month. However, the amount looks small if compared to his salary; Ibrahimovic made $27 million a year when he was playing in England.
The impressive house has six bedrooms, a gym, and a wine cellar. It is also completely decorated. In 2017 the owners put the mansion on the market for $8 million. A bargain if compared to other items on this list like the private jet.
5 Mansion In Malmo
In 2009 Ibrahimovic made his first millionaire investment on the real estate business. He bought a house in Malmo, Sweden, his home country. He paid approximately $3.5 million for the mansion.
The luxurious home was built in 1912 and has a 1,854 area. It faces the Oresund Strait, the river which connects Denmark and Sweden. The house has five bedrooms, three balconies, and a fabulous swimming pool.
Ibrahimovic sold the house in 2015 for the same price for which he bought it. The property now belongs to Carl Soderberg, an ice hockey star.
4 Helping The Swedish Team
Back in 2009, the Swedish assistant coach Dagens Nyheter called Ibrahimovic. He asked for an autographed shirt for an auction, and the money would be used for bringing the soccer team to the World Cup in Brazil.
When Ibrahimovic heard the Swedish team was struggling with money to travel, he decided that he could do more than just giving a shirt. He asked how much they needed and the bank account number. In a few hours, the Swedish team had approximately $33 thousand available for the travel. That was a generous gesture.
3 A Church
In 2015 Ibrahimovic bought a church in Stockholm, Sweden. No, you didn't read it wrong. However, he had no religious purposes in mind. The player paid $11 million for the four-story building.
According to The Telegraph, he plans to renovate the church and turn it into an apartment and lives there, after he retires from his international career.
He already revealed that he would prefer to live in Stockholm than in Malmo when he retires. "It feels more international. The fact that I've lived abroad a lot means I must have an international sense."
2 An Island
There are a few people in the world wealth enough to afford a private island. Ibrahimovic is one of them. While most people would choose an island in Caribe, where the sun shines most of the year, the soccer player chose an island in Sweden.
The Davensö island is in the middle of the Lake Mälaren in Stockholm and is the thirtieth largest in the country. According to some sources, Ibrahimovic bought the place because it is a great hunting area. There is no information about the price of the island, but it certainly cost some millions.
1 Praising himself
You will meet a few people in the world that have self-esteem as high as Ibrahimovic. In March 2018, when he signed with the American team LA Galaxy, he announced it in the Ibrahimovic way.
The player bought a full-page in the Los Angeles Times just to say five words: Dear Los Angeles, You're Welcome. Ibrahimovic had a 95 percent pay cut to join the team. He made $1.4 million in 2018, nothing compared to his $27 million annual salary.
